Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

Do you think it would reflect poorly upon me to email my Winter Term professor to ask whether they're using a Credit/Fail or H/P grading system? Someone told me that all 1L j-term classes were Credit/Fail, but someone at the registrar told me that they thought it was H/P. Not proud to say it, but th...

Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

Winter term is still a pass/fail course, correct?

Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

I had both Mack and Stephenson. I got the impression neither of them really factored in attendance and grading is more or less entirely dependent on the exam. I seem to recall the average attendance rate for Mack lectures was something like 70% by mid-semester for my section. Speaking of which, hav...

Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

If I'm living in the dorms, do you think buying the discounted MBTA pass would be a good investment? I'm not from the area, so I don't know how often I will be going into Boston, for example. The total price for 4 months is $253. Might it be cheaper to just buy tickets using my "CharlieCard"? If li...

Re: Gunning for academia in 2019 and beyond

Not OP, but curious about something. I understand that a PhD is becoming increasingly common for law professors. I personally don't mind the idea of 5 more years of school post-JD, especially considering that I could potentially begin teaching at a law school as a VAP during the dissertation years. ...

Re: Deciding if Law School is the Right Path?

I always reply in detail when people from my undergrad email me, and I've noticed that people always respond to me. I did go to a SLAC though.

Re: Odds at Acceptance to HLS?

In with 3.79/175. It looks like 3.7+/174+ is the magic ticket this year. Congrats, but this is a random thread to share this in. Isn't there a general Harvard 2018-19 cycle thread? I think they shared it here and necro'd this thread because of the above convo on whether a 3.75 is good enough for H....

Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

Would you estimate that most HLS students went to "prestigious" undergraduate colleges (let's say, the top 20 or so universities/LACs)?

Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

Also, do y'all know how much HLS raised in the Campaign that ended this year? I know the other Harvard schools raised insane amounts of $, but haven't seen anything about HLS. I'm curious because a bumper campaign would mean good things for future students here.

Are there any wood burning fireplaces on campus? Either at the law school or nearby? I'm from the southwest and the idea of sitting by a fireplace in a snowstorm sounds like a dream.
